Girls held captive: 911 calls and police report released

TUCSON - Police have released the 911 call and the police report regarding the three girls held captive in their midtown home for up to two years.

In the 911 call made to the dispatcher, the neighbor states, "I'm calling on behalf of some neighbors of mine, they say that their father or their neighbor someone is trying to break into their hour with a knife."

With dispatchers on the line, the neighbor hands over the phone to the 14-year-old girl, she explains that she was unsure if her mother's husband was drunk and her 17-year-old sister is still in need of help. "We were just standing there and you see, my mom's husband was trying to open the door, but he broke it in half. And me and my sister got out of the window" said the 14-year-old girl.

The police report reveals the officers asking the parents to come out with their hands up. The mother of the girls, Sophia Richter, opened the door. "I observed Sophia to have bloodshot watery eyes, odor of intoxicants coming from her person and stumbling," said Police. Richter's husband, Fernando Richter, was showing signs of similar behavior.

In the house, officers found the 17-year-old girl in her bedroom with hip hop music blaring. She told officers that she did not like or trust and was afraid of Fernando. Also in the house, officers found bottles of urine and video cameras in the living room.
